Introduction: Health has been known as the human`s fundamental right, but it is an individual responsibility. Obviously, the way people live in the community, lifestyles and the way people think have a special effect on their health. On the other hand, critical thinking is a process that is used to achieve the most rational and most legitimate positions in certain cases. Thus, This study aimed to evaluate the tendancy to critical thinking and its relation to health risk behaviors in Tabriz nurses.

Methods: This analysis and correlation study was conducted in 2013. 768 nurses were selected from the Tabriz teaching hospitals. Demographic data questionnaire, California Critical Thinking Disposition Inventory and lifestyle questionnaire were distributed among the study group. 501 questionnaires were collected, the number of 483 questionnaires were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistical analyzes.

Results: The findings showed that most nurses had a positive disposition to critical thinking. In terms of health behaviors, most nurses were in an acceptable range and there was a direct and significant relationship between critical thinking disposition and health risk behaviors (p<0/05).

Conclusion: The results showed a significant and positive relationship between critical thinking dispositions and health risk behaviors. This means that if a person's tendency to critical thinking is positive, acceptable behavior probably would be healthy. Therefore, it is essential to improve this way of thinking, using appropriate educational programs.
